According to the U.S. Board on Geographic Names, the "correct" native names for both locations are "Ban Krut." The USBGN also lists "Ban Krud" and "Krut" as variants for the Ban Krut at N11.35 / W99.5666667.
The "correct native names" would be written in the Thai alphabet and can only be transliterated. I have been told that there is no exact "t" or "d" as pronounced in english. The closest is a "dt" sound, hence the variance.
The "official" sign posted near the entrance to the village is written as Ban Krood.
Likewise vowels .. represented by the "a" could be sounded as an english "ah" (so "a" or "aa" are bothe correct since it is a longer sound), while the "u" has an "ooh" sound .. apologies to the USBGN?
And you don't want to even know about glottal stops or the 5 tones.
